BANGKOK, 13th November 2018 (NNT) - Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha has declined to comment on his decision in regard to his future in politics. 

Prime Minister and chief of the National Council for Peace and Order Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha on Monday had just returned from his participation in the ceremony to commemorate 100 years since the end of the World War I held in France, and the Paris Peace Forum. 

In his comments to the press, Gen. Prayut said that he has been informed of the southern flood situation and assistance measures rolled out by state agencies. 

However, the Prime Minister declined to respond to questions about his readiness to allow any political parties to nominate him as a prime ministerial candidate. 

Meanwhile, reporters said Gen. Prayut has assigned Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Gen. Prawit Wongsuwon to chair the weekly Cabinet meeting, as the Premier will be attending the 33rd ASEAN Summit in Singapore between November 13 and 15 before proceeding on a trip to Papua New Guinea for the 26th APEC Summit on November 16 to 18.

My thought: He is making sure he will be elected before he allows any campaigning or even announces an exact election date, cause like Mao, and other totalitarian leaders, he thinks he is the only one who knows what is best for the country

I think it's obvious which group  should be running the country.  The Rap group.  All that song and dance.  Surely they couldn't then turn to be corrupt.

All the time he doesn't come right out and say NO, he won't be a candidate, everyone is going to assume that he has every intention of being so. One day perhaps Thai politicians will learn to be open and honest, traits that would actually make them more appealing. Nah, not gonna happen.

He doesn't want to be a candidate. Candidates have to offer themselves, debate, tolerate unpleasant questions and suffer the ignominy of rejection, which he is incapable of.

He wants to be begged to come back - old muggins 'reluctantly' having to save the day yet again. That way he gets to keep the job AND to sidestep the less savoury aspects: 'Hey, I didn't want this in the first place, so away with your bothersome scrutiny and rude questions...'

Just think he got cold feet after realizing how unpopular he is and the pro-junta political parties not gaining any traction. His 4 years of living in his bubble finally burst by a sense of reality. He is done and even if he get to the top by deceit, he will confront mass anger manifestation.

legalize marijuana for personal use and you'll be priminister guaranteed. You can take everyone elses rights but even it out with the right to get high!....

If not i predict civil unrest. The good pm visited our province recently and the night before everyone put up hate banners that i took photos of but wont share for obvious reasons. Police were out in force pulling them all down the very next morning. I must say i had no idea there was so much anger at this pm by all thais not just the younger crowd.

Even hundreds is probably pushing it, let's be honest...

 

Ah…but don't underestimate Uncle. He’s easily generating enough swag to keep three figures worth of sycophants rolling in cash and deliriously happy.

If a candidate is not allowed to campaign why doesn’t PTP nominate him as one of theirs thereby preventing little Too to do so?
